UPDATED: Friday, April 21 at 5:39 p.m.: A producer for “Sleep No More,” the experiential theatre show based at the McKittrick Hotel, is opening up a new performance space in the Meatpacking District.

Randy Weiner, a producer for the show, has signed a lease at 450 West 14th Street for a new performance called “Seeing You.” The performance will run six weeks, starting on June 1.

The approximately 102,000-square foot building is known as the High Line Building, because it covers part of the park.

“Sleep No More” is an immersive show and a variation on Shakespeare’s MacBeth. Guests wear masks and walk through several floors at the McKittrick, located at 530 West 27th Street, while they interact with the actors.

The Space On 14th Street is controlled by Winthrop Realty Trust, a public real estate company. It acquired a $15 million preferred equity position in the structure in 2011. Two years later it sued the building’s landlord, the Hirsch family, for failing to provide a document it needed to secure a $55.25 million loan.

The 7,640-square-foot lease is a short-term deal, sources told the publication. Shorter-term deals are increasing in popularity in the city, thanks to a weakening retail market[Crain’s]Miriam Hall 

Correction: Due to an error from the source material, an earlier version of this story said theater production “Sleep No More” would be opening a second location. Rather, a producer from “Sleep No More” is opening the production of “Seeing You” at 450 West 14th Street
